Creed 2 News, Koreana Food Coming to Center City and more Chit Chat
Warm welcome to spring, sure signs of it in Philly, Logan Fountain has been turned on, Rittenhouse Square packed at lunch time and in the evening Rittenhouse restaurant row packed with people eating al fresco. Hope to see everyone on Easter Sunday for the South Street promenade which begins at 12:30PM at Passyunk and South Streets.
Michael B Jordan was spotted running the Schuylkill River Banks Boardwalk last week.
Creed 2 starts principle filming Monday April 2 at Sun Center Studios in Aston, Pa with a cast of thousands of extras. I think they’re filming the finale fight first, not only because of the huge amount of extras on set, but because the actors have been working out and pumping up for the past three weeks at the Sporting Club where they also have a boxing ring. The kind of training they’re doing isn’t the kind of training you can do while you’re filming a movie.
They’ll be at Sun Center Studios until the the middle of the third week of April filming, but may pop out to do occasional filming around town during those three weeks. After April 15 look for more filming in and around Philadelphia. You might have a chance to see them as we all did during the first Creed. Look for Creed 2 to come out November 2018.
On Wednesday the cast of Creed 2 including Dolph Lundgren, Michael B Jordan and Tessa Thompson had dinner at Zahav, in old city, the restaurant by Michael Solomonov or Solo as his friends call him. It’s so good there. The restaurant just got a James Beard Award Nomination for best service. James Beard Awards are like the Oscars for Food. I covered the nominations last week, which were held here in Philly, hosted by Visit Philly and held at Parc restaurant. Also nominated was Ellen Yin, of High Street & a.kitchen for best restaurateur. Rich Landau, chef/partner with his wife, Kate Jacoby, of Vedge restaurant who was nominated for best chef in the mid-Atlantic region.
Milk House closed 2 weeks ago as I reported on Chit Chat; Yesterday I noticed a new sign on the window:
Seems Koreana Food is moving in. They currently have a place in University City.
Koreana Food offers a wide variety of traditional Korean Food.Yes 1818 Market Street did get a new sign. Sleek, modern and colorful.
